that's why barack obama is having senators down to the white house tomorrow. that's why rahm emanuel was on the hill today. if that knowledge permeates the democratic party, that will help drive them together. yes, there are disagreements among democrats on how to pay for this, how to regulate it, etc., etc., down the line. it's not easy. but the president itself has appealed to democrats behind closed doors and said, look, if you study the history, you know that if the party doesn't stick with its president, it's bad as midterm elections, my friends. i think they get that. that's why in the end, despite all of the tumult and the slowing down on the pace of things, the democrats will get together. in the end, they'll go their own way. they're going to forget the republicans. forgot them in the house. no republicans in the house. two or three in the senate. that's the maximum of the number of republicans you're going to see in the end on this. >> howard fineman, thanks as always. >> thank you, david. >> you're welcome.
